The first Indigenous people

The first people arrived in Australia between 50 -60,000 years ago. When they arrived by boat Australia was home to giant marsupials and Goannas that were about 5 times the size of Komodo dragons. This was the Dreamtime. The first Human footsteps were in the Kimberly’s.

Some scientists believe that human involvement is responsible for the extinction of giant animals others blame the ice age. Rock paintings have been found that were done as early as the last ice age.

Aboriginal Australians ancestors have seen many climate and physical changes to the land and sea and were once able to walk to Tasmania. At the ice age peak the seas fell hundreds of meters so they would have hunted in areas that are now deep underwater.
